    About the degree

    Studying Theology at the University of Deusto has the great advantage of doing so in a university environment of academic excellence and major social impact. One of the major concerns of the Faculty of Theology is to educate its students to enable them to give an account of the Christian faith in today's world in dialogue with the sciences, the humanities and other religions.

    As a result of the process of adapting Theology degrees to the European Higher Education Area, we offer programmes designed to:

    • Hold a variety of leadership positions
    • Inculturate the Christian message in today's society,
    • Evangelise in various educational and training contexts
    • Promote training and growth in the Christian faith of groups, Christian communities and apostolic movements.


    This programme allows us to give an account of the Christian faith in today's world in dialogue with the sciences, the humanities and other religions.



    You will be able to work in pastoral ministries, in the media and as a secondary school religion teacher, among others.
